Research:Daily unique registered editors
Filtering bot accountsEdit
Bot accounts are filtered using the bot flag strategy. This allows for straightforward and efficient bot filtering, but it is also possible that unflagged bots will be counted. Given the proportion of bot editors, this should have minuscule effect on the overall count.
As this is a daily metric, a full 24 hours must elapse after the beginning of the date (UTC) in order to calculate an uncensored value.
Edits on deleted pagesEdit
This metric includes edits on existing pages as well as pages that have been or will later be deleted. This allows us to define a metric as stateless, in other words historical values will not change in the future depending on the status of a page (existing/deleted/moved) at the time the metric is computed. Deletion-related activity is tracked via a separate set of metrics.
